Windsurfing - Skimming over the ocean using a sail, having the power
of the wind flowing through you, is invigorating and yet calming. I
started windsurfing twenty years ago, and have discovered that
Halifax.s Eastern Shore is a playground for fun on the waves. Fall in
Nova Scotia brings tropical storms and sometimes hurricanes, with big
waves and plenty of wind, and I can often be found at "Da Range", one
of the best places in the world to learn to wavesail.
Surfing - When there are some waves but the wind is weak and/or
offshore, surfing in Nova Scotia is good. I began surfing at an
advanced age, and will never surf at an advanced level, but it.s
always fun and relaxing to get in the water.
Hockey - A bunch of surfers play hockey each week, and allowed me to
take up the sport at an advanced age. I huff and puff a lot, but at
least I.ve stopped skating the wrong direction and trying to score on
my own goal! And playing hockey makes it so much more fun to watch.
